China Prototype Manufacturing: Concept and Function of Prototype Manufacture
By NICE Rapid | May 08 , 2016

What is prototype? (Product model)

The rapid prototypes are one or few functional sample boards, which are made before opening mould, on the basis of product appearance drawings or structure drawings, in order to check the rationality of appearance or structure.

Functions of prototype

1. Inspect appearance design

The rapid prototyping is not only visible, but is tangible, which results in intuitively reflecting the designer's originality in the form of material object.

2. Inspect structure design

As the prototype is mountable, it can intuitively reflect whether the product structure is reasonable or not and also reflect the complexity of installation, which contributes to early finding problems and solve them.

3. Avoid the risk of directly opening mould

As the mould manufacture cost is very high in general, for instance the larger mould is worth of hundreds of thousands and even millions, if there are unreasonable structures or other problems during opening the mould, it will cause inestimable loss that you cannot imagine. However, prototype manufacture can avoid this kind of loss and reduce the risk of opening mould.

4. Greatly reduce the product available time

Due to the advancing of prototype manufacture, you can make the product publicity and even previous sales and production preparations with the prototype before developing mould, which helps to occupy the markets as early as possible.
